IMG_1504_small by Andre Vautour, on Flickr

IMG_1508_small by Andre Vautour, on Flickr



IMG_1510_small by Andre Vautour, on Flickr


last shot of the old cable management

IMG_1512_small by Andre Vautour, on Flickr


the old cables from the front panel and some from the fan controller hidden up in the roof. still now 100% sure if i will install the fan controller again but i do sort of like the control and i was able to get it very neat except for the annoying molex which is the only thing i need a molex for. i would like to get rig of the molex all together

some of the bits that will be going into the new build

Looks great so far but I almost had a cow when I saw that huge cooler on there
I've gotten too used to seeing liquid coolers on this forum lol Thanks though, I am better able to envision my upcoming project (minus the gigantic cooler)
